New release round-up…

For a change I am going to focus only on singer-songwriters and there have been some very strong new albums of late…

First up PHIL CAMPBELL ‘Saviour’s Song’, www.philcampbellmusic.co.uk I’d recommend this one for any one after an eclectic mix of tunes. ‘Vodka Milk’ is a definate ‘must hear’.

DAVID MINASIAN ‘Random Acts Of Beauty’ ProgRock Records www.progrockrecords.com okay its prog but the keys and melodies are very uplifting. Plus it features the first new music to feature Camel’s Andy Latimer, after his health issues.

BAT KINANE ‘A Lifetime To Kill’ is the debut solo offering from the Glyder guitarist. A good mix of blues, folk and acoustic tunes. ‘Light Of My Life’ even features a prog rock approved keyboard solo – nice 🙂

RED BOX ‘Plenty’ Cherry Red return of the 80’s pop band although they are now more akin to the mighty Talk Talk. The soundscapes and instrumentation on this album are something else, highly recommended for lovers of thoughtful, well crafted pop music.

AL LEWIS ‘In The Wake’, neat mix of folk and pop rock helped by the duets with Sarah Howells.

One last quick recommend for now is the Outcast Band whose album is perfect for lovers of the Levellers and the Waterboys. I would imagine they are even better live as this type of music is just made for a lively festival.
